Janice Min Doesn’t Lament Her $2M Pay Check

us_weekly_min3.jpgFormer Us Weekly editor Janice Min has been laying relatively low since leaving the celebrity tabloid last summer, but now that she has a book due out next year — From Mousewife to Momshell — we expect we’ll probably start to hear more from her in the coming months.

Today, Min took to The New York Post to write an op-ed about being the family breadwinner — and making more in one paycheck than her teacher husband made in a whole year.

While the article deals with Min’s struggles to balance work and home life and avoid wanting to kill her husband for not being able to go grocery shopping, we can never get enough of her Us Weekly anecdotes. Like this one:

“Two months after becoming editor-in-chief, I became pregnant. (I’m sure my boss was not psyched, though he never let on.) Nine months later, I gave birth — just hours after closing an issue and an early morning Today show appearance to talk about J.Lo’s third wedding.”
